Be at peace in the knowledge that I am God: I will be lifted up among the nations, I will be honoured through all the earth.
Life can hurt us, grieve us, annoy us, pain us, and at times terrify us. God knows this. If we think that He will always save us from the terrors of this existence, then we are mistaken and eventually our faith will take a severe beating. This week I will be attending the funeral of a friend who was taken suddenly seemingly in perfect health and yesterday I heard of another who died leaving a wife and 2 precious little children. I don't believe God plans these things, but I do believe that He knows. In some mysterious way that we only begin to glean by the revelation of the Bible, He will make all things good, and will make all His children overcomers. In that we may find peace, with His grace to help us in our time of need.
